At the Annual Meeting on Tuesday, January 24, Arlington Land Trust will focus on climate change strategies for our region and town. The public is invited to this free meeting at the Central School / Senior Center, 27 Maple Street, 7-9 pm
Rebecca Davis, Deputy Director of the Metropolitan Area Planning Council, will lead a presentation and discussion of “A Regional Climate Change Adaptation Strategy and What Arlington Can Do.” MAPC has developed a regional strategy with recommendations for local, regional, and state action to reduce vulnerability to the anticipated impacts of climate change. This Strategy builds on findings of the Massachusetts Climate Change Adaptation Report (2011) and many other pertinent publications developed to date. In addition to outlining short and long-term land use changes, the Strategy includes actions for mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions on private and public properties, a crucial first step in adapting to climate change.
August 31, 2016: Oaktree Development has submitted its application to the Arlington Zoning Board of Appeals to build a 219-unit development at the Mugar site.
The entire document set is available to download HERE. At 225 pages it is best to right-click and download the file rather than trying to open in a web browser.
Arlington Land Trust continues to advocate for the permanent protection of the Mugar parcel as conservation land. The site lies almost entirely in the 100-year flood plain, is subject to regular and significant flooding, and is a critical stormwater buffer for the surrounding and downstream neighborhoods of East Arlington.

Arlington’s Open Space Committee is pleased to announce two initiatives that have been completed recently: an approved Open Space Plan and a new web-based application to assist users in visiting many of Arlington’s parks and other open space sites.
The Town’s updated Open Space and Recreation Plan for 2015-2022 has been approved by the Massachusetts Division of Conservation Services, the agency that oversees open space planning across the state. The complete Plan is posted on the Town’s website on the Open Space Committee page .
Section 5 of the Plan presents maps and descriptions of 20 major open space and recreation sites, with additional information on all of the more than 70 parks, playing fields, and conservation lands in Arlington. Other sections of the Plan present historical and environmental information on the Town, goals and objectives for future open space projects, and an action plan for implementing various projects in collaboration with many other Town departments, committees, and organizations.
Experiencing Arlington’s Open Spaces is a new web-based application based on the Plan. Developed by Arlington’s GIS planner, this app makes much of the site information readily available for viewing on your smart phone or tablet. For each open space site featured on the app there are multiple photographs and a brief description of the property, as well as a map showing access points and internal walking trails.
Please review the complete Plan online and test out the application, and let us know what you think. The Open Space Committee is an appointed Town committee that meets monthly and is open to visitors. See the committee website for more information.
